The point of this story is not they disobeyed an order. Its the fact that the government is not giving them what they need to perform their jobs. There is a difference between the Battle of the Bulge and simply driving a fuel truck that has no protection. We shouldn't be sending our troops to Iraq like this. They should be prepared.

I understand the point. As unfortunate as it is, this has always been the case. There are always units ill equiped. I agree they should get what they need, but in all practice that just does not always happen.

It is dangerous to those involved and to others. Order is very important in military operations. Those who are disorderly often get people killed. If the CO had a problem with the order, they should have followed the proper channels. If more detail shows they did, good for him. If they didn't they should be prosecuted according to the UCMJ.
What insult?

All I'm saying is I think you jumped to conclusions.
